As an Alabama Crimson Tide fan, I had the idea of a Houndstooth afghan bouncing around in my mind. I couldn't find one like I wanted so I decided to design my own. This pattern is easy and can be made in any color combination! The basic pattern is for the scarf but directions are included to make an afghan. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Chain stitch, slip stitch, single crochet, double crochet, reverse single crochet. Stitches are in U. S. A. English. GAUGE No gauge needed. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS About 6"x70" for scarf. Afghan size to be determined by maker.
